how 'bout in points leagues?


In a points league I'd generally rather fill up the RP slots with RP-eligible starters. Starters generally score more points than relievers in points leagues but it's all dependent on your league settings.

Yeah really depends on if it's a H2H or season long Points league.
In a season long one with an innings limit, closers have higher value, and closers with SP status are gold since you can get more points per inning with a closer than you can a starter.
I've never played in a H2H points league so I can't comment on that.

per RotoTimes
Clay Hensley has supplanted Leo Nunez as the Marlins closer, according to the Palm Beach Post.


For now.

“I talked to Leo about it and we’re on the same page,” said Rodriguez, adding that Nunez confided in his manager that he has lost confidence in throwing his pitches for strikes.
Rodriguez said Nunez could be inserted back into the closer’s role as soon as next week, depending on his progress.

Drop Broxton at this point (if you're not in a holds league)?
Doesn't seem like he's going to get the job back unless Kuo falters.

Broxton - The #1 closer on almost every pre-season fantasy board.

Just goes to show you how quickly closers can lose it.

My general rule is I don't draft a seemingly lights-out closer unless he has more than 100 outings as the closer for his team. It usually takes that long to figure out if the guy can handle the job. Broxton was at about 100 outings after 2009. It took Broxton 150 games to fail, but I suspect if he gets another opportunity he will be fine.

Jose Valverde has some tenderness around his right elbow and won't be available to the Tigers for the next few days.
Phil Coke and Ryan Perry are likely to see save chances while he's out. Valverde, a demon on the mound, has posted a 1.18 WHIP and 61 strikeouts in 60 innings this year while converting 25-of-28 save opportunities. Sep. 9 - 4:06 pm et


Ryan Perry with the save tonight, should get some more while Valverde's out.

I just think (if indeed Valverde is out for any period of time) Coke would only get a save in a lefty heavy lineup
